More InformationTEDx Renfrew Collingwood is back for its second year and is happening on Saturday, October 25! Acting as a hub of energy and inspiration, TEDxRenfrewCollingwood is a day-long event that brings together creators, catalysts, designers and thinkers to share their ideas worth spreading on the TEDx stage. A day of listening that invites thought, discussion and play, the TEDx talks are interspersed with activities, performances, and food worth eating. This year’s speakers and activity leaders will be working under one unifying theme – a game we have all played since we were kids: Rock, Paper, Scissors! ROCK: Topics will include people who ground us, the planet we live on and the solid foundations for design and education. PAPER: Topics will include communications, media and the arts, plus interesting new ideas revolving around the paper of today tablets, smart phones, touch screens and more. SCISSORS: Topics will focus on cutting through the present and leaning into the future, what is predicted and what ideas will help us to get there with intelligence and thought. Here you will hear sharp views from sharp minds.
